The story below is about a King & what happened with him at the fag end of the story.
Once upon a time, there lived a King who was very wise. The people in his Kingdom were also happy with the way they were governed.
The King had a habit of moving around in his kingdom but in disguise. He dressed as a common man & moved around. His sole aim was to see how his people were living. Whether they were facing any issues in day to day life and what was their opinion about the king.
No-one in the kingdom knew about this secret strategy of the King. The King used to take only 1 trusted servant with him.
An Eventful day
Like other days, the King was moving with his trusted servant. Suddenly, an unfamiliar smell attracted his attention. He asked his servant –
” Go and see what’s that wonderful and delicious smell”?
The servant said –
“Ok, Maharaj! I will inquire and get back to you in a moment.”
After 15-20 mins, the servant came back and said –
” Maharaj ! It was the smell of the chaff. The village women in that nearby village are pounding paddy”.
The King was happy to hear that his servant could successfully identify the source.
He has tasted the best delicacies of the World but this smell attracted him like anything.
To the surprise of the servant, the King ordered him to bring the chaff for him. The King said –
“I am very happy with you. Now, go and bring me some chaff. I want to taste.”
“But Maharaj, chaff is fed to domestic animals like cows and pigs”.
said the servant.
“This is my order! Go and bring it for me” – said the King.
The servant followed the orders of the King.
He brought the chaff to the King & the King relished it.
After having the chaff, the King said –
“Listen! You are my trusted servant. Never ever disclose this incident to anyone ever in your life.
If you do disclose it to anyone, you will lose your head”
Days passed by…
Days passed by but the servant found it increasingly difficult to digest this incident. He wanted to share this secret with someone, but he could not. His stomach boated up. He stopped eating & drinking. He tried to make himself engaged in any activity so as to forget the incident but he failed.
We wanted to loudly tell this secret in a place where there is no one present.
The man sets off for a place to share his secret
He traveled near a river with the objective to share this secret. The riverbank was far off from his home. We walked for several hours and finally reached the river bank. Now, he was very happy & thought to himself –
“Thank God! Now I can share my secret with the river & the river will flow away with my secret to far off place without sharing it with anyone”.
Just as he was preparing to share, he saw 5-6 fishermen arrived in the riverbank.
The man got scared & left that riverbank immediately.
Now, he went to a cemetery to share his secret. On arriving at the cemetery, he saw that the gravediggers were present.
So, he canceled his plans at the cemetery and went to a deep foret.
The man enters into a deep forest
It was a deep, dark forest. The man was scared but he was desperate to share the secret. So, he took the risk of entering the forest.
In the forest, he saw a big tree with a big hollow in the trunk.
The man was desperate, he put his head inside the hollow trunk and whispered –
“The king eats chaff! Our King eats chaff!”
Now, he was a relieved man. It seemed like he had shed all burdens of his life. He started leading his life like all normal men.
It was festival time at the Kingdom. Kings & renowned men from all the friendly Kingdom were invited.
Meanwhile, all preparations were underway.
The drum of the palace had become old. So, the drummers wanted to replace the old palace drum with a new one.
The King granted the demand & he ordered a new big drum for his Kingdom.
The drummer went to the forest
The drummers went to a deep forest in search of suitable wood for the drum. While looking for the wood, they found that there was a big tree with a hollow in the trunk.
The drummers felled the tree and a big drum was made from that tree.
Installation of the big drum
The new big drum was finally installed in the lion gate of the balance with fanfare.
Meanwhile, the ceremony was conducted with lots of enthusiasm. At the end of the ceremony, the drummers were to beat the drum to mark the conclusion of the ceremony.
The drummer beat the drum
As per norms, the drummers started beating the drum. Instead of the “Boom ! Boom ! ” sound, the drum uttered –
“The King eats chaff! Our King eats our chaff !”
The King got furious. He ordered to immediately throw the drum in the river.
Then the King caught hold of his most trusted servant and said –
“You … I told you not to share the secret with anyone but still you revealed the secret with the drum !”
The servant was trembling with fear. He could visualize his beheaded self in front of him.
He gathered a lot of courage and told the King –
“Pardon me, Maharaj! As promised I did not share the secret with any human being. But, I had shared it with a tree”.
Later on, the investigation revealed that the tree with which he shared the secret was felled and the drum was made from that tree.
The King did not give him any punishment. But, he was no longer allowed to accompany the King.
